    Introducing Dance:Revolt Recordings, a new label formed by a collection of scene veterans that is sure to make immediate waves on the international house music scene. Dance:Revolt is the brainchild of renowned Florida-based DJ/producer Atnarko in cahoots with Dub Creative Group, an industry-established marketing and media team as well as hosts of internationally renown house music events. The label is intended as "a celebration of music and lifestyle," working within a variety of formats, including vinyl 12" issues of Dance:Revolt's releases.

    It's only fitting that the inaugural release be from Atnarko himself. His recent exploits have earned him much acclaim, with "Thinking Of You," a collaboration with vocalist Sam Mollison for Fred Everything's Lazy Day Recordings, being a recent highlight. Atnarko launches Dance:Revolt with the deceptively titled "Violent Sky." As violent as the sky might be, Atnarko's sublime cut is a smooth, bouncy, and deep affair propelled by a slinky rhythm track and an entrancing melodic riff. A strange spoken vocal can be found floating within the sonic space adding a bit of mystique. "Violent Sky" is a prime groover, queued and ready for the next set.

    The enigma continues with Three Piece Suit, an assumed moniker of a producer who wishes to remain anonymous. Three Piece Suit's version builds off the melody and places it on top of a polished breakbeat rhythm. Layers of lush synths round out the cut making it an excellent counterpart to the original. This is followed by a mix from Texas producer Rey Aguilar (Fade Records, petFood). Rey's rework brings things back to house music's four-on-the-floor for a nightclub-ready treatment with peak time elements. The big breakdown section at midpoint should shake things up nicely. Finally, Mallorca-via-Baltimore producer Lomez (Hypercolour, My Favorite Robot) adds his seasoning to a slightly darker take characterized by hefty analog-style synth stabs, a chunky mid-tempo beat, and a growling low end. It's an evocative mix that will fit perfectly among covert after-hour gatherings.

    Giom - “Woo-hoo Atnarko is back! Good mixes all round.”
    Dubfire - “The Rey Aguilar remix is the bomb!”
    Nick Warren - “Three Piece Suit and Lomez mixes hit the spot for me.”
    Brett Johnson - “Deep and floppy. I like this a lot!”
    Diz (Vizual / Classic Music) - “A really nice early evening boogie for that super late after party. Nice one.”
    DJ Rocca (Ajello) - “Welcome back, Atnarko! The original is the one for me.”
    Joshua Heath - “Big ups to Atnarko on his new venture! Great release all in all. Love the original and Three Piece Suit rework. Lomez remix is dope, too. Thought it was going in one direction and totally did the opposite.”
    Q-Burns Abstract Message - “The original is totally up my street and will be firmly lodged in the box. Lotsa bounce to the ounce!”
    Chris Todd (Crazy P / Hot Toddy) - “Rey Aguilar mix is my pick, will play.”
    Severino (Horse Meat Disco) - “Great stuff here, all mixes.”
    Holmar Filipsson (Thugfucker) - “Wicked package. Really like the Rey Aguilar mix and the Lomez mix.”
    DJ Schwa (Shades Of Gray) - “Rey Aguilar remix is wicked!”
    Andrew Grant (Circoloco) - “Lomez mix is quality.”
    CheckPoint Charlie (MyCuppaT blog) - “Nice and chunky, just the way I love it! The original is great, the breaky vibe on Three Piece Suit is superb, and the Lomez Lost Society mix is a bass-juiced monster. Fantastic!”

      The launch of a new label by Atnarko sounds really good. Original with the Anne Clarke like vocal sampler is unique house or future galacti disco piece of dance music. From the side of the remixes like mostly Lomez Lost Society Mix one, its lay back disco groove and cool keys sound super, midtempo Three Piece Suit Remix offers a sound from the middle of the eighties.
